Nottingham-based singer-songwriter Victoria Hoffman has now released her new indie single ‘Hopeless Love’.

Born in Nigeria, Victoria spent her childhood in Greece before she moved to the UK. Her parent’s background in medicine pushed her to become a singer-songwriter, fighting criticism online for mixing different genres.

In the eyes of prejudice, Victoria – as a black musician – was criticised online for not befitting to stereotype genres such as R&B or Soul. This only pushed Victoria to make the music that SHE wants to make, no matter what anybody else says.

‘Hopeless Love’ is an indie anthem, telling the story about love at first sight and hardship in relationships – wondering ‘what could have been?’.

“This is a song about boy who sees girl on a bus and they have an instant connection. They both were in a relationship already, which makes things even more dramatic. They were seeing each other secretly, hoping they won’t get caught – unfortunately, it didn’t last long, the girl had to move away, and a few years later, she is married with kids and she is thinking of what it could have been, hitting that she would like to meet the guy again.”

With heavy guitar and an indie-folk style, Victoria is hitting the right note with this new single. Having only started writing songs in 2018, ‘Hopeless Love’ is her third studio track and comes ahead of a proposed album released in the Summer.
